Fool by Christopher Moore

Kristy Madden, January 4, 2013

I really loved this book. It's a retelling of King Lear from a humourous perspective. Bawdy and hilarious, Moore's imitation of the Shakespearean prose is dead-on perfect. But it isn't just humourous; there is a larger story here which elevates this book above mere comedy. I give it the highest recommendation.
